Men Can Be Sexual Assaulted [Don’t Forget About Us]

When no support is available,
Building up enough courage,
Asked for help; no judgement,
Response, ‘I can’t help you’,

Requested a simple task,
[Visit] the Women’s Center,
You couldn’t even search YouTube,
[For] PTSD or Chronic Depression,

Men can’t be raped because we’re men,
[I] call bull-shit; do you hear me?

Everyday all I wanna’ do is breakdown,
Cry myself to sleep; never step outside,
Hide under my blanket; moon’s reflection,
How come when I ask for help it isn’t heard,

When I helped you apply [for] immigrant status,
When I helped you apply [for] University,
When I helped you apply [for] work,

When you told me about your uncle’s inappropriate touching,
When you told me about your mother working at Pizza Hut,
When you told me about your father dying,

Did I refuse?
Did I reply ‘get over it’?

When I asked for help; You refused?
All I give, is everything I am,

Hands willing to strike if somebody touches you,
Words willing to sting if somebody disrespects you,

Is it not enough that I hide behind walls,
When I see somebody who reminds me of my rapist,
Is it not enough that I hate going out,
Unless it is absolutely necessary,
Is it not enough that I keep distance between us,
Fearing if He returns he will rape you next,

Stop playing with my manhood,
Stop telling me that it is in the past,

How can it be in the past when every red car,
Reminds me of the car he drove away in,
How can it be in the past when Calvin Klein cologne,
Remind me of his smell as he pulled out,
How can it be in the past when all men,
Remind me of the danger of trusting men,
